The 12thMan and the Seahawks are excited to see the return of wide receiver Percy Harvin (#11) to their practice facility, the Virginia Mason Athletic Center (VMAC), in Renton, Washington yesterday. On the weekly Pete Carroll show on 710 AM ESPN Seattle, he told hosts Brock Huard and Danny O’Neil that Harvin had returned from rehab in New York City. Carroll said Harvin has started running this past weekend. In a press conference later that afternoon, Carroll said that Harvin has started working out with his teammates.
Harvin tweeted he was back and ready to do work.
Harvin is still on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list until after the Seahawks Week #6 game against the Titans this Sunday.
When will Harvin suit up and play in an actual game? As I wrote this past week, I would expect Harvin to return no earlier then Week #8. Let’s hope we get to see him make his debut as a Seahawk on Monday Night Football against the Rams.
Harvin can have an immediate impact on the Seahawks kick return portion of the game. The Hawks longest kick return so far this season was from wide receiver Jermaine Kearse (#15) for 30 yards. The longest punt return was 33 yards by wide receiver Golden Tate (#81). From 2009 to 2012, Harvin had kick/punt returns of 101, 95, 104, and 105 yards, respectively.
